    The Russian guy in the first fight of the undercard
    The brazillian guy who koed eddie wineland
    Neil Magny
    The Detroit Superstar
    Costas
    Brown

    Imo I didn't think Costas or Brown were dogs and made 40$ off them tonight, but I feel like I shoulda picked Neil Magny. Eddie and Koch getting KOed did catch me off guard.

    According to the site I'm looking at 5 favorites won. But if you picked all the correct underdogs in a parlay I think it was about 70,000 to 1. A 100 bet would have made you a multi-millionaire.

    • Johnny Eduardo
    • Zak Cummings
    • Ed Herman
    • Chris Cariaso
    • Neil Magny
    • Daron Cruickshank
    • Costas Philippou
    • Matt Brown
    Eight fighters who were the underdog won out of thirteen fights; so approximately 62% of the underdogs won their respective fights.

    It's like Keno. If you pick certain numbers and win, you'll hit big. But the chances of you picking the correct 5 people and knowing they were all going to win on this particular card then you deserve it because only a psychic would be able to predict that.

    70,000:1? That can't be right.


    I thought the three 'main card' fighters were all slighted by Vegas. That was the easiest parlay bet I've ever made.

    Serious question: Was Matt Brown really an underdog with fans/bookies? Considering their respective records going into the fight, I assumed Brown would be considered the favourite.

    He was about a 2:1 underdog, yes.

    I don't get it either. My assumption is that the Brazilians were going hard on Silva and it turned the bets around or something. Brown, to me, was the clear favorite in this fight, but whatever. I'm assuming a lot of Americans made money on this fight, and a lot of Brazilians lost it.

    Yeah, it does sound obscene. Don't take my word for it, I probably messed it up. Either way, hitting them all would have been huge.

    It's a nice fantasy anyway.

    Matt Brown closed at +210 on 5Dimes.

    If you picked all 8 underdogs it would of paid out approximately 29250:1.

    Thank you.

    Not as wild as I thought but still massive and a multimillionaire with 100 bucks.
